Make the most of your Grand Canyon West experience with Grand Canyon Airlines. We’re proud to offer the thrill of flight to visitors already touring the canyon’s west rim. This air tour departs from the Grand Canyon West air terminal and flies you over the canyon’s most notable landmarks. Take in glorious views above Eagle Point, home of the famous Skywalk glass bridge, Guano Point, and other areas of interest within the west rim. As with all Grand Canyon Airlines tours, narration will highlight interesting geological facts and explore the history of the Grand Canyon.
Once you return to the air terminal, you’ll board an air-conditioned motor coach for a self-guided ground tour of Grand Canyon West. This hop-on/hop-off shuttle will take you to the important viewpoints along the rim of the canyon. At Hualapai Ranch, western charm sets the tone for this old west cowboy town complete with an old fashioned gunfight. Eagle Point, named for the eagle-like rock formation visible there, provides stunning views 4000 feet to the bottom of the canyon. Finally, Guano Point offers a spectacular viewpoint that juts out into the Grand Canyon and offers a nearly 360-degree canyon view. Return to the terminal having explored the Grand Canyon by both air and ground, making this one unique adventure!
